Anyone here ever tried freeze distilling peach wine similar to making applejack? Seems with some aging and back sweetening could be pretty good.

Probably be easier to step feed and fortify for a port style dessert wine - plenty of threads around on it. If using E1118 yeast you should be able to get it to 18% before the yeast gives up.

Sorry, but we do not discuss distillation on this forum. At all.

(And, before you ask: Yes, "freeze-distillation" is considered "distillation" by the revenooers.)

Would like to hear from a moderator on that, perfectly legal in some parts of the country because, technically, it's not actually distilling but freeze fractioning. Btw, revenooers are just enforcers of the biggest racket of them all imo, sorry for those who still have to look out for them, especially for home distilling.

Sorry, not meaning to be argumentative on definitions, will just go the port approach with the high ABV yeast, close enough.

I should have been a little more clearer. Distilling is not legal in all states, where the server for this forum is housed, distilling is illegal so we do not discuss such methods.

Federal law takes precedence and overrides any state law that does not agree with it. So to "Distill" you must have a -The Federal Distilled Spirits Permit.

So unless you have one it is illegal under FEDERAL law to distill spirits

THEN you must also abide by any applicable state licensing/permit requirement.


This comes from a site called Whiskey Still Pro.
